The track might be a type of blueprint....

Anyone else believe or experience anything that might lead you to believe this track is a sort of....blueprint....for one of these ...."beings" Like maybe the static stimulates your brain to ....."produce" one of these things??? (Steps off soapbox of cards and glass) just a thought but you know....I must have been soooo high......

Re: The track might be a type of blueprint....

i think it's related to every 'hidden' / final track of a tool album ...the gaping lotus experience, disgustipated, viginti tres, and ...well i guess that's it (lamc? idk). or the final scene to most tool videos, in which there's a godhead level of being/understanding, where the two polar hemispheres of brain lateral-ization comes together, into a whole mind, next level consciousness awareness. the veil has been lifted. as mckenna puts it "redeeming spirit from matter" or completion of "the work of redeeming the self from the contaminated dross of the traumatized and damaged psyche that we each inherit from our passage through the parental shit pile".

the 13th track indicates the 13th step / chakra, but represents a perspective of a new heart. a softening of old armour, shedding the old form, into a new skin, rebirthing of a new being. the guy running about therefore represents an egoless / more-harmonic understanding of what's going on in a world of utter disharmony (referred to as area 51... not the famed secret base mind you, but as if everything on this plane of disharmonic/44&2 conscious understanding ...is area 51).

"i, i don't have a whole lot of time. um, ok, i'm a former employee of area 51. i, i was let go (see: the grudge) on a medical discharge about a week ago and, and... [chokes] i've kind of been running across the country. damn, i don't know where to start, they're, they're gonna, um, they'll triangulate on this position really soon.

ok, um, um, ok, what we're thinking of as, as aliens, they're extradimensional beings, that, an earlier precursor of the, um, space program they made contact with. they are not what they claim to be. uh, they've infiltrated a, a lot of aspects of, of, of the military establishment, particularly the area 51.

the disasters that are coming, they, the military, i'm sorry, the government knows about them. and there's a lot of safe areas in this world that they could begin moving the population to now. they are not! they want those major population centers wiped out so that the few that are left will be more easily controllable."

the last bit of dialog is crucial. compare "and there's a lot of safe areas in this world that they could begin moving the population to now. they are not!" with eulogy's "standing above the crowd, he had a voice that was strong and loud ...ranting and pointing his finger at everything but his heart". essentially, the military, i'm sorry, the government represents disharmony, polarity... black or white. divide and conquer. which is bullshit... and shallow. tool encourages the opposite ...a sense of unity, and depth. let go of the edges of "things", watch "things" ("parts" of me) die, and learn to swim "this ocean of chaos", etc.

from salival's live third eye's timothy leary intro: "think for yourself. question authority. throughout human history, as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are, or where we are going in this ocean of chaos, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. to think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open-mindedness; chaotic, confused, vulnerability to inform yourself. think for yourself. question authority."

coming back to faaip de oiad ...i believe "population centers" refers to 46&2 christ (unity/harmonic) consciousness = vulnerable, questioning, doubting, unconditional, "a passionate spirit, uncompromised, boundless and open" (wings for marie) ...ego crucified, "and you will come to find, we are all one mind" (reflection)

from terence mckenna's "empowering hope in dark times" lecture: "this is the peacockís tail and in alchemy, this was thought to precede the final whitening. this is the passage into the pure, and the goal really. rather than see the present world as exclusively a veil of tears and a black prison - none of these metaphors are mutually exclusive - the great strength of alchemical ...[is that] the alchemist had the wisdom to see that everything occurs in the presence of itís opposite. itís not either-or, itís BOTH-AND! they called this the coincidentia oppositorum. this is the coincidence of opposites, the union of opposites."

then we have mjk's biography, entitled "a perfect union of contrary things" (or 'coincidentia oppositorum').

as for the static, it is said to indicate the 'cosmic microwave background' or 'afterglow of the big bang' itself. coupled with danny carey's solo, i'm reminded of the idea (and documentary of the same name) that "the heart is a drum machine". so again, imo ...track 13, faaip de oiad ...is an ode to being connected with the pulsating eternally open (omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent, without judgement) HEART(center) of the cosmos "a message of hope for those who choose to hear it, and a warning for those who do not" (rosetta stoned)

but idk. iwk. idk. iwk. ;)

Re: The track might be a type of blueprint....

alrighty, then ... picture this if you will.

10 to 2 am, x, yogi dmt, and a box of krispy kremes,
in my "need to know" pose, just outside of area 51
contemplating the whole "chosen people" thingy
when a flaming stealth banana split the sky
like one would hope but never really expect
to see in a place like this.
cutting right angle donuts on a dime
and stopping right at my birkenstocks,
and me yelping...
holy fucking shit!

then the x-files being,
looking like some kind of blue-green jackie chan
with isabella rossellini lips, and breath that reeked of
vanilla chig champa
did a slow-mo matrix descent
outta the butt end of the banana vessel
and hovered above my bug-eyes, my gaping jaw,
and my sweaty l. ron hubbard upper lip,
and all i could think was:
"i hope uncle martin here doesn't notice
that i pissed my fuckin' pants."

so light in his way,
like an apparition, [that]
he had me crying out,
"fuck me
it's gotta be
the deadhead chemistry <<< 44&2
the blotter got [right] on top of me
got me seein' e-motherfuckin'-t!"

and after calming me down
with some orange slices
and some fetal spooning,
e.t. revealed to me his singular purpose.
he said, "you are the chosen one,
the one who will deliver the message.
a message of hope for those who choose to hear it
and a warning for those who do not."
me. the chosen one?
they chose me!!!
and i didn't even graduate from fuckin' high school.

you'd better...
you'd better...
you'd better...
you'd better listen.

then he looked right through me
with somniferous almond eyes
don't even know what that means
must remember to write it down
this is so real
like the time dave floated away
see, my heart is pounding
'cause this shit never happens to me

i can't breathe right now!

it was so real,
like i woke up in wonderland.
all sorta terrifying
i don't wanna be all alone
while i tell this story.
and can anyone tell me why
y'all sound like peanuts parents?
will i ever be coming down?
this is so real
finally, it's my lucky day
see, my heart is racing
'cause this shit never happens to me

i can't breathe right now!

you believe me, don't you?
please believe what i've just said!
see the dead ain't touring
and this wasn't all in my head.
see, they took me by the hand
and invited me right in.
then they showed me something
i don't even know where to begin.

strapped down [to] my bed
feet cold [and] eyes red
i'm out of my head
am i alive? am i dead?
can't remember what they said
god damn, shit the bed.

hey ...

overwhelmed as one would be, placed in my position.
such a heavy burden now to be the one
born to bear and bring to all the details of our ending,
to write it down for all the world to see.

but i forgot my pen
shit the bed again ...
typical.

strapped down [to] my bed
feet cold and eyes red
i'm out of my head
am i alive? am i dead?
sunkist * and sudafed
gyroscopes and infrared
won't help, i'm brain dead
can't remember what they said
god damn, shit the bed

i can't remember what they said to me
can't remember what they said to make me out to be the hero
can't remember what they said
bob help me!
can't remember what they said

[we] don't know, [and we] won't know (x12)

god damn, shit the bed!
